parkrun Practice Initiative 

In an exciting and innovative initiative, the ICGP is collaborating with parkrun Ireland to promote the health and wellbeing of staff and patients. Under this initiative, GP practices across Ireland are encouraged to develop close links with their local parkrun to become parkrun practices. Click here to view the parkrun practice map
